The Cardinals are in a playoff mess of their own, though a fairly simple one, in the context of post season berths. They know it, too, and their need to not only win today, but also have the Saints lose, has created a faint vibe of desperation.
Unfortunately, the Saints are playing the Bucs, a team in 2013 known more for terrible coaching and bacterial infections than winning football games. Nevertheless, the Cardinals took their cause to Twitter, and also brought Star Wars into the equation, because why not.
If things continue this way, I'd say the Cardinals are on their way to watching their home planet get destroyed.
